Marrowstone woman was neglected, prosecutor says BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT TOWNSEND — Two local residents face arraignment Friday on first-degree manslaughter and first-degree theft charges after the death of a 77-year-old woman for whom the accused were working as caregivers. The arraignment of Richard M. Huber, 56, and Betty June Haley, 70, is set for 8:30 a.m. in
at Jefferson Healthcare hospital. Hospital personnel contacted the Jefferson County sheriff, saying Johnson wore soiled clothing, her hair was matted and her knees stained with dried blood. She was in pain and unable to communicate, the report said. The next day, the Sheriff’s Office learned that Johnson was severely dehydrated and in renal failure, with a fractured kneecap and multiorgan failure, the report said. On April 18, she died. According to the statement, Huber told investigators that it had been difficult for him to care for Johnson and that he was “too tired to change her diaper” the
night before and had planned to do it that morning. At the time, Huber told deputies he had last washed Johnson on April 11 and changed her diaper April 12, two days before. During a subsequent investigation, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Detective Barb Garrett said she found that Huber had removed $20,000 from Johnson’s bank accounts shortly after Ray Johnson died. Garrett said Kathleen Johnson had suffered “a rapid decline into dementia” after her husband died and that Haley, who would “push and yell at” Johnson, was executing control over Huber.

Replacement project slated to take at least 5 months BY JEREMY SCHWARTZ PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — The remaining stretch of the 44-year-old bridge carrying East Lauridsen Boulevard over Peabody Creek came crashing down Wednesday afternoon, reduced to a pile of broken concrete and twisted rebar in the ravine below. Glenn Cutler, the city’s public works and utilities director, said the bridge collapsed under its own weight as demolition crews with Staton Cos., under contract with Kent-based Scarsella Bros., chipped away at concrete slant-leg supports under the bridge. “The center of the bridge went
down,” Cutler said Wednesday. “It’s like a wide V shape now.” All that remains are the two bridge abutments on either side of the ravine where the bridge deck once connected to the asphalt of Lauridsen Boulevard.
First step in project The demolition is the first step in the bridge replacement project Scarsella Bros. is completing under a $4.5 million contract with the city. A federal grant is paying for 80 percent of the contract cost, while the city is picking up the remaining 20 percent. Crews now will move demolition
equipment, such as the current excavator used to break up the bridge from the top, down a city-owned stretch of gravel road to access the bridge remnants in the creek bed and break them into smaller pieces, said Jeremy Pozernick, public works inspector and the city’s project manager for the Lauridsen bridge replacement. The debris will be trucked away to a site of the contractor’s choosing, Pozernick said. “It’s their material to do with as they please,” he said. The gravel access road leads down the east side of the ravine and is accessed by South Race Street. TURN TO BRIDGE/A5
State: Raw oysters are off the menu PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
State and county health officials are advising seafood lovers to cook their oysters this summer. More than 40 people in the state have been sickened this year with vibriosis, including one from Thurston County who ate an oyster thought to have been harvested from the Brinnon area.

JACK W. GERMOND, 85, a portly, cantankerous columnist and pundit who covered 10 presidential elections and sparred with colleagues on TV’s “The McLaughlin Group,” has died in Washington, D.C. Mr. Germond died Wednesday morning. He had recently finished his first novel, A Small Story for Page Mr. Germond Three, about a reporter investigating political intrigue, being published Friday. With Jules Witcover, Mr. Germond co-wrote five syndicated columns a week for nearly 25 years, most of that time spent at The (Baltimore) Sun. He was in many ways emblematic of his generation of Washington, D.C., journalists: He was friendly with the politicians he covered, and he cultivated relationships with political insiders during late-night poker games and whiskeyfueled bull sessions. “Before politics was fed into computers and movable maps came out, Jack Germond had it all in his head,” said Walter Mears, a former political writer for The Associated Press and a friend and competitor. Mr. Germond, Witcover and Mears were among the Boys on the Bus chronicled in Timothy Crouse’s seminal

Manning gender woes FORT MEADE, Md. — Pfc. Bradley Manning’s private struggle with his gender identity in a hostile workplace put incredible pressure on the soldier who leaked classified information to WikiLeaks, an Army psychologist said Wednesday. Manning eventually came out to Capt. Michael Worsley. He emailed the therapist a photograph of himself wearing a long, blond wig and lipstick along with a letter titled “My problem.” In the letter, Manning describes his issues with gender identity and his hope that a military career would “get rid of it.” Worsley testified at Manning’s sentencing hearing and said the soldier had little to no support base. “The pressure would have been difficult, to say the least,” Worsley said Manning faces up 90 years in prison for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq in 2010.

Briefly: World Palestinians, Israelis kick off peace talks JERUSALEM — With tensions high and expectations low, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators kicked off their first substantive round of peace talks in nearly five years, huddling together at an undisclosed location Wednesday in search of an end to decades of conflict. The meeting was cloaked in secrecy. Officials would say only that the talks took place in Jerusalem. The Israeli government released a brief video showing the chief negotiators shaking hands as the talks continued into the evening. A new Israeli push to build hundreds of new homes in Jewish settlements and fresh fighting in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip underscored the tough road ahead. “We are committed to making the effort, for the sake of Israel and for Israel’s values,” Israel’s chief negotiator, Tzipi Livni, told Channel 10 TV. The negotiations came after months of mediation by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. It is the third attempt since 2000 to agree on the terms of establishing a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

Protester crackdown in Egypt; 278 killed THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CAIRO — Riot police backed by armored vehicles, bulldozers and helicopters Wednesday swept away two encampments of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, setting off running street battles in Cairo and other Egyptian cities. At least 278 people were killed nationwide, many of them in the crackdown on the protest sites. Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and pro-reform leader in the interim government, resigned in protest over the assaults. Clashes broke out elsewhere in the capital and other provinces as Islamist anger spread over the dispersal of the 6-week-old sit-ins of Morsi supporters that divided Egypt. The Health Ministry said 235
civilians were killed and more than 2,000 injured, while Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim said 43 policemen died in the assault. He said Morsi supporters attacked 21 police stations and seven Coptic Christian churches across the nation, and assaulted the Finance Ministry in Cairo, occupying its ground floor.
Draws condemnation The violence drew condemnation from other predominantly Muslim countries but also from the West, with Secretary of State John Kerry saying it had dealt a “serious blow” to Egypt’s political reconciliation efforts. The assault to take control of the two sit-in sites came after days of warnings by the interim administration that replaced Morsi after he was ousted in a
July 3 coup. The camps on opposite sides of the Egyptian capital began in late June to show support for Morsi. Protesters — many from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood — have demanded his reinstatement. The smaller camp was cleared relatively quickly, but it took hours for police to take control of the main sit-in site, which is near the Rabbah al-Adawiya Mosque that has served as the epicenter of the pro-Morsi campaign. Police dismantled the main stage near the mosque in the eastern Cairo district of Nasr City, the official MENA news agency said. An AP reporter saw hundreds of protesters leaving the sit-in site carrying their personal belongings. Smoke clogged the sky above Cairo, and fires smoldered on the streets.
Abducted teen posts that her captor deserved to die THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN DIEGO — The 16-yearold California girl kidnapped by a close family friend suspected of killing her mother and 8-year-old brother said he threatened to kill her if she tried to escape and “deserved what he got” when he died in a shootout with authorities in the Idaho wilderness. Hannah Anderson went online barely 48 hours after her rescue Saturday and started fielding hundreds of questions through a social media site. Many were typical teenage fare — she likes singer Justin Bieber, her favorite color is pink — but she also answered queries about how she was kidnapped and how she is dealing with the deaths of her mother and brother. The postings started Monday
night, h o u r s after her father publicly requested that the family be allowed to grieve and heal in priv a t e . B r e t t Anderson didn’t respond to a text message seeking comment about his daughter’s postings, which continued into Tuesday evening. The account was disabled Wednesday. James Lee DiMaggio, 40, was shot at least five times in the head and chest, said Valley
County Coroner Nathan Hess, who completed an autopsy Monday in Boise. DiMaggio’s body was cremated Tuesday near Los Angeles, said a family spokesman. At one point during the series of posts, a questioner asked Hannah to post a photo — and she complied. Hannah said DiMaggio “tricked” her into visiting his house, tied up her mother and younger brother in his garage and kidnapped her. After learning from her FBI rescuers Saturday that the two had been found dead, the 16-yearold said she cried all night. “I wish I could go back in time and risk my life to try and save theirs,” she wrote. “I will never forgive myself for not trying harder to save them.”

PA port will consider Oysters: Cook shellfish term-change measure CONTINUED FROM A1
BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PORT ANGELES — A proposed Nov. 5 ballot measure to reduce Port of Port Angeles commissioners’ terms from six years to four years will be discussed in an upcoming port commission workshop. The workshop probably will be held at the next regular port commissioners’ meeting Aug. 26, commission President Jim Hallett said. Hallett said Monday he was concerned that if voters approve the measure, more than one board position would be up for election in subsequent elections and port terms would not be staggered, creating a potential loss of continuity on the board if both incumbents lost their positions.
Monday meeting Term-reduction proponent Norma Turner presented the proposal at Monday’s port commission meeting before commissioners said they may put forward their own term-related plan for voter approval. She also urged the port commissioners to put the measure on the ballot themselves, “given the high level of public interest in this issue.” “If this was on the ballot, have you thought through how this could be done so the terms are staggered?” Hallett asked Turner. “That would be a difficult decision,” Turner said, adding that she was not sure it
would be “good policy” to have two of three commissioners up for election at the same Turner time. Turner said she and more than 40 volunteers are close to collecting the minimum 2,686 signatures needed — 10 percent of voters in the 2011 election — to put the measure on the Nov. 5 ballot.
turn over at one time,” Hallett said after Monday’s meeting. “With two-thirds turnover, you could lose some continuity.” Hallett said he may propose that the winner of the November election serve five years in his or her first term on the board, and that the position have four-year terms in successive years so two commissioners are not ever up for election in the same year. Clallam County commissioners have staggered terms, though majorities on the Port Angeles City Council, Port Townsend City Council and Jefferson County Board of Commissioners are up for election in the same years. Turner said in a later interview that she saw little need for the workshop. “I’m a little confused as to why they need to have a workshop for public input when they could have that discussion by putting it on the ballot, and that could create the discussion,” she said. McHugh said the workshop would provide a good opportunity to also discuss increasing the number of port commission seats. Commissioners are paid up to $13,992 a year in salary and per diem payments, and receive medical, dental, vision, long-term disability and life insurance.
The signatures must be collected by Sept. 2 for the measure to get on the Nov. 5 ballot, a deadline she said would be met. “I don’t think this is a show-stopper,” Turner said. “All laws are written by people and can be changed.” If voters approve the measure as proposed, the winner of incumbent Paul McHugh’s port commission seat — Colleen McAleer or Del DelaBarre survived the Aug. 6 primary, not McHugh — would serve four years. Port commissioners also could put the measure on the ballot. Hallett and Commissioner John Calhoun would serve their full six years before their positions have four-year terms.

No cases have been reported on the North Olympic Peninsula. As of this week, several parts of the Hood Canal, including Dabob and Quilcene bays in East Jefferson County, and Hammersley Inlet near Shelton are closed to commercial harvesting because of high vibrio levels, the state Health Department announced. Commercial operations can resume once the vibrio levels go down. “It’s not a big economic impact on them,” said Dr. Tom Locke, public health officer for Jefferson and Clallam counties.
Cook oysters The Vibrio parahaemolyticus bacteria can grow quickly when warm weather coincides with midday low tides. The state Health Department recommends cooking all shellfish in the summer months to kill the bacteria. “We’ve had a warm summer, which increases the risk that eating raw oysters might make people sick,” said Jerrod Davis, director of the Office of Shellfish and Water Protection. “It’s much safer to eat cooked oysters, especially this time of year.” Vibriosis can cause watery diarrhea, often accompanied by nausea, stomach cramps, headache, vomiting, fever and chills. Symptoms generally appear within 12 to 24 hours of consuming raw shellfish and typically last for two to five days.
“We’ve had a warm summer, which increases the risk that eating raw oysters might make people sick. It’s much safer to eat cooked oysters, especially this time of year.”
JERROD DAVIS director, Office of Shellfish and Water Protection It can be life-threatening for those with weak immune symptoms or chronic liver disease. Locke said the Hood Canal is particularly susceptible to vibriosis because of its relatively warm temperatures. Commercial oyster harvesting is a multimilliondollar industry along Hood Canal.
Oysters tested “The state has a rigorous testing program to ensure that commercially harvested oysters are safe to eat,” Locke said. Although commercial harvesters use special control measures in the summer to keep people who eat raw oysters from getting sick, the state Department of Health closes commercial growing areas when vibrio levels become high or when there are four confirmed vibriosis illnesses within a 30-day period. Rick Porso, manager of the Office of Shellfish and Water Protection, said Quilcene Bay was closed July 19, and Dabob Bay was

“This is sort of that time of year that we see vibriosis,” Locke said. “The safest thing to do is cook the oysters.” Elsewhere, commercial operations at Oakland Bay and Totten Inlet in south Puget Sound were closed this summer because they had four confirmed vibriosis illnesses. “I definitely recommend against people harvesting oysters in the wild at this time of year,” Locke said. Recreational shellfish harvesting was closed on most North Olympic Peninsula beaches earlier this summer because of elevated levels of marine biotoxins that cause paralytic shellfish poisoning, or PSP, or diarrhetic shellfish poisoning, or DSP. Unlike vibrio, marine biotoxins are not destroyed by cooking. For information on recreational shellfish closures, phone 800-562-5632 or visit www.doh.wa.gov.

The closures affect 19 Jefferson County companies. “The companies may or may not be operating at this time of year because they know that during this time of year, vibrio seems to be flaring up,” Porso said. “If they have a high level of bacteria, we require two good samples at least seven days apart.” Dabob Bay also was closed last August because of the vibrio bacteria, affecting 14 commercial shellfish companies.

Agency stumped by taking Medical pot of endangered birdâ€™s habitat dispensary BY STEVEN DUBOIS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PORTLAND, Ore. â€” Two federal agencies are at loggerheads over a decision to remove five old-growth trees from the habitat that supports a threatened sea bird during breeding season. The U.S. Forest Service cut the massive trees â€” one was 238-feet tall â€” in late April at the Sunshine Bar Campground near Port Orford in southwest Oregon.

PORT TOWNSEND â€” The owner of a medical marijuana dispensary set to open Friday in downtown Port Townsend expects it to be popular. â€œWeâ€™ve had a lot of positive feedback from people just while we were setting up,â€? said James Loe earlier this week. â€œThere are a lot of medical pot patients here, and they are excited about not having to drive out of town to get their medicine,â€? he said. â€œThey want to get it quickly, take it home and start medicating.â€? The Townsend Herbal Collective is located at 1139 Water St., which was last occupied by A-1 Photo. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and from noon to 6 p.m. Sundays â€œso people can get their medicine on the way home from church,â€? Loe said. Loe has renovated the space to contain a reception area, a secure room where the marijuana is displayed and a storage area. The storage area will contain a safe where the product and cash will be locked up each day, he said.
Initiative 502 In November, voters approved Initiative 502, letting an individual user possess and legally consume up to an ounce of marijuana, though not in public, with the eventuality of providing a retail channel for recreational use of the drug. Voters already had approved a process for providing medical marijuana in 1998, and the state Legislature amended the pro-
cedures in 2007 and 2010. The laws governing medical and retail channels do not necessarily intersect. The rules for operating a retail establishment are in development and are scheduled to go into effect in 2014. The Port Townsend Police Department will not make any accommodations or preparations for the dispensaryâ€™s opening, Chief Conner Daily said. â€œWe donâ€™t expect any trouble from medical dispensaries,â€? Daily said. â€œFrom what Iâ€™ve observed, they are all following the law.â€? Officer Luke Bogues, the departmentâ€™s spokesman, said, â€œI hope they do what they can to remind his customers about the dangers of smoking and driving.â€?
Smoking and driving â€œSomeone impaired by marijuana will be treated no differently than if they were drunk if theyâ€™re behind the wheel of a car. They will be arrested for DUI,â€? Bogues said. â€œAlso, marijuana cannot be displayed or smoked in public. So itâ€™s best if his customers take the product home and keep it there.â€? Loe had leased a space earlier at 1433 E. Sims Way but then decided it didnâ€™t accommodate his business. That location now has been leased by Gracen Hook, owner of the Port Hadlock Alternative Clinic, 215 W. Patison St., who plans to open a branch of his business there in September. A dispensary called Canna-Copia is located at 661 Nessâ€™ Corner Road in Port Hadlock. Loe and Hook both said there was enough business to support multiple dispensaries.
State notes Bridge: Closure Sentence: Car jobs increase T Labor force up for 10th month BY RACHEL LA CORTE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA â€” Washington stateâ€™s job market showed growth for the 10th month in a row even as the unemployment rate saw a slight increase, officials with the Employment Security Department said Wednesday. The state added an estimated 8,800 jobs in July, but the monthâ€™s unemployment rate of 6.9 percent was up a tenth of a percent from the prior two monthsâ€™.

Industries that saw the biggest job gains last month include education and health services, which gained 6,400 jobs; professional and business services, up 2,100 jobs; and leisure and hospitality, which saw an increase of 1,500 jobs. Sectors that saw the largest losses were wholesale trade, down 2,100 jobs; government, which lost 1,000 jobs; and construction, which was down 600 jobs. More than 239,000 people were unemployed and looking for work last month, including 108,214 who claimed unemployment benefits during that same time period. Since July 2012, when Washington stateâ€™s unemployment rate was 8.3 percent, the state has gained nearly 74,000 jobs. The national unemployment rate for July was 7.4 percent.
â€œThe unemployment rate has been pretty flat for the past three months, but weâ€™re continuing to see the kind of solid job growth that will gradually bring down the unemployment rate,â€? Paul Turek, a labor economist for Employment Security, said in a written statement. Figures for Clallam and Jefferson counties will be available Tuesday. Over the 10 months of growth, the state has had an average gain of about 6,000 jobs a month, officials said. Also, state economists revised Juneâ€™s job growth numbers Wednesday, adding 900 jobs, to bring the new total to 10,700 jobs. Two different surveys
are used to calculate unemployment figures and job losses and gains. The unemployment rate represents the percentage of the labor force thatâ€™s unemployed and actively looking for work. People who have stopped looking for work are not counted. The job gains and losses estimates are based on a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of businesses.

Where is Obama’s foreign policy? “We maintain the peace through our strength; weakness only invites aggression.” — Ronald Reagan, March 23, 1983 PRESIDENT REAGAN’S SPEECH to the nation 30 ago launched a major arms buildup to confront the expanding military power and political aspiraCal tions of the Thomas Soviet Union. It followed the disastrous presidency of Jimmy Carter, whose nonperformance during the Iran hostage crisis led to the perception in the Muslim world that America was weak and had lost its resolve to confront enemies. President Barack Obama appears to believe that killing Osama bin Laden — which he mentioned for the umpteenth time at his news conference last
Friday — and conducting drone strikes against terrorists in Yemen and elsewhere is enough to deter terrorists. Now comes another threat. The Times of London reports Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, who, in addition to his history of stealing elections and confiscating the land of white farmers, has signed an agreement with the Iranian regime to supply it with raw materials that can be used to make a nuclear weapon. Weren’t we assured that Iran wants nuclear power only to provide electricity to its people? Have we learned nothing from past behavior? Tyrants lie, and Islamic tyrants are instructed to lie to “infidels” by their “holy book” in the pursuit of earthly objectives, even world domination, according to some interpretations of the Quran. As The Times reports: “[Iran] is fond of declaring its near selfsufficiency in uranium supplies for its disputed nuclear program. “As with many announce-
ments by Tehran, however, those claims have only a slender basis in reality. “It does have substantial uranium deposits, and its largest uranium mine was opened recently amid great fanfare, but deposits are of poorer quality than those found elsewhere.” Enter Mugabe, whose struggling economy has recently begun to show signs of life. “The European Union only recently lifted sanctions against 81 officials and eight companies in Zimbabwe,” notes Times writer Michael Evans. “These sanctions imposed in 2002 for human rights abuses and political violence remain in force. . . .” Sanctions have not deterred Iran in its pursuit of a nuclear weapon. What now? There is talk of a response by the “international community,” which is neither international in its thinking nor a community in its fight against terrorism. As usual, any response will have to come from the United
Peninsula Voices Smart meters II The letter [“Smart Meters,” Peninsula Voices, July 30] about the city of Port Angeles’ smart-meter installation project was responded to [at PDN request] by Phil Lusk, deputy director of power and telecommunications systems for the city of Port Angeles. Mr. Lusk stated that the smart meter sends readings for only one to two minutes per day. In June, I presented evidence refuting this statement at the City Council meeting. I explained that radiation levels in my workspace, measured by a radmeter, are consistently 100 times the level of normal background radiation since installation of a smart meter in 2011. I further explained that radiation directly in front
of the device was 500 times the level of normal background radiation, measured in Tesla units (uT.) At that meeting, I submitted photographs of three different blood samples — taken before and after exposure — showing extreme blood degradation immediately following exposure. Because it involves the health of local citizens, I expected that city government would be interested in this issue and would want to verify my evidence. Except for council member Sissi Bruch, no one has investigated. My findings show that smart meters appear to be a source of high radiation levels, creating a consistent, negative impact to blood quality. The people of Port Angeles need to be informed. They can see the evidence at a free showing of
States, NATO and/or Israel. Given President Obama’s ordered withdrawal from corrupt Afghanistan and U.S. public opinion mostly opposed to additional “foreign entanglements,” it falls to the president to lead. Leading is not something Obama has done well. Consider his failed “outreach” to the Muslim world and his equally ineffective “reset” with Russia. In 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton produced a red button, which she and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, pressed. The Russian word for “reset” was wrongly translated as “overloaded.” Was that prophetic symbolism? Can anyone articulate this president’s foreign policy and point to where it is working? In a column for London’s Sunday Telegraph titled, “Obama’s not to be trusted on foreign policy,” Janet Daley writes: “But there must be at least a glimmering of doubt even in Europe — where the Obama presidency has been given an

absurdly easy ride — that America, too, is adrift in the post-Cold War landscape: that it no longer has any clear conception of its global role.” Endless speeches by the president are not a policy. It bears restating that the Ayatollah Khomeini believed in the strength and resolve of Ronald Reagan. That is why on the day of Reagan’s 1981 inauguration, the ayatollah released 52 American hostages held for 444 days. Strong individuals deter bullies. Strong nations deter enemies and keep the peace.

Obamacare: Upsides, downsides BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR WASHINGTON — About half the people who now buy their own health insurance — and potentially would face higher premiums next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law — would qualify for federal tax credits to offset rate shock, according to a new private study. Many other people, however, earn too much money to be eligible for help, and could end up paying more. The estimate, being released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, tries to answer one of the biggest remaining questions about the impact of Obama’s law on American families: Will consumers wince — or even balk — when they see the premiums for the new plans? The study found that 48 percent of families currently buying their own coverage would be eligible for tax credits next year, averaging $5,548 per family, or 66 percent of the average cost of a benchmark “silver” policy offered through new state insurance markets.
“About half of the people won’t be paying the sticker price,” said Gary Claxton, director of the health care marketplace project at Kaiser, an information clearinghouse on the health care system. “The people who get help will get quite a lot of help.” “Many, but certainly not all, of the people who don’t get tax credits will pay more,” he said. “How much more will be a function of a lot of different things.” For example, some people who don’t qualify for tax credits may get jobs that offer coverage, added Claxton, a co-author of the study. And the bottom line on premiums may not be clear until sometime this fall, after the Health and Human Services Department releases rates for more than 30 states where the federal government is taking the lead setting up new insurance markets for individuals and small businesses. People can enroll starting Oct. 1, and coverage becomes effective Jan. 1. Most people currently covered by employer plans are not affected.

afford to buy their own coverage. The share will vary from state to state. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius recently estimated that in Texas, as many as 9 in 10 people buying coverage in the new market will get a break on costs. People with individual coverage they buy themselves represent a small sliver of those with private insurance, only about 5-6 percent. That’s expected to grow significantly under Obama’s law, which will require most uninsured Americans to get coverage. Estimates of the number of people who currently have individual coverage range as high as 19 million, but Claxton said the Kaiser study used a smaller estimate of about 10 million. It’s based on an ongoing government survey that some researchers regard as more accurate.

Great, and costly outdoors I PURCHASED A Discovery Pass during a visit to Fort Worden this past winter. While I didn’t enjoy spending Lee $30 for the right Horton to park my car somewhere, I figured it was money fairly well spent because of all the places the pass would get me into. A big part of my thinking was that Hurricane Ridge is so close, so I was bound to use the pass a few times, and therefore it would pay for itself. I’m sure many of you see a huge flaw in my plan, and I’m ashamed that I didn’t as well. So, I went to Hurricane Ridge earlier this week, and proudly displayed my Discovery Pass as if it were a backstage pass to a rock concert. I rolled down my window, merely as a formality and with the expectation that the person in the booth would wave me in. Instead, he informed me that my pass was only good for state parks. Rejection. I had to spend $15 for a pass that was good for seven days. I get that a national park and a state park are different. But for some reason, I thought the Discovery Pass was good for both types of park. Looking at it now, I realize that it was a dumb assumption. My bad. Shame on me. But what I couldn’t stop thinking about as I drove the winding road up to Hurricane Ridge — besides making sure the trip would be worth $15 — was how expensive the outdoors can be. To visit Olympic National Park and the state parks of the North Olympic Peninsula, I have to purchase two $30 passes. And, for a sizable portion of the year, the winter months, Olympic National Park is usually only open on Saturdays and Sundays for skiing and snowboarding, and only if the weather is good. And then, you need skis or a snowboard and coats and gloves. To fish outside the national park will cost you another $29 to $55. So, if you’re fishing on state-managed land, or using a state water access site, you’ll have to pay up to $85 per year. And that doesn’t include fishing gear and boat maintenance. For years, there has been a movement to get kids away from things like television and video games, and return to the great outdoors. But, the thing is, the indoors are probably less expensive. This is more of a rant than anything else. Everything good costs money these days, and I doubt our governing bodies would decide to one day stop asking for our cash. And upkeep for these parks probably isn’t cheap, either. It’s just a shame.
ShellFest Saturday is ShellFest at Fort Flagler State Park on Marrowstone Island. ShellFest, put on by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and the Washington State Parks Foundation’s celebration, is set for 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fort Flagler. The event includes exhibits, a guided interpretive low-tide walk, food, hands-on children’s activities and educational information about restoring and protecting shellfish beds in Puget Sound.

Stepping up a must Seven-win season won’t do it in 2013 BY TIM BOOTH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SEATTLE — In some fashion, Keith Price and his teammates have been reminded every day of what 2012 could have been for Washington. The reminders showed how the Huskies were so close to taking that next step in the progression most expected when Steve Sarkisian took over, finally leaving behind the seven-win plateau, only to lose the final two games of last season by a combined five points to again finish 7-6. “We were reminded of it every day,” said Price, the Huskies’ senior quarterback. “That’s one of our goals this year — finishing and executing
UW Preview at key moments. We didn’t do that last season.” Washington begins 2013 with the expectation that seven wins are no longer acceptable. This is the year the Huskies must show progress, pushing to be talked about with Stanford and Oregon as the elite of the Pac-12 North Division. As they move back into renovated Husky Stadium, just a winning record and bowl trip are no longer good enough. “I think there are a lot of programs in our conference that would be really happy to have gone to three bowl games in a row and finish with winning
records,” Sarkisian said. “I think that’s acceptable. But that’s not the way we’re judged here, one, and that’s not the way we’re built here, two. “We’re built to win championships and we’re judged on our championships.” Here are five things to watch as the Huskies get ready for their Aug. 31 opener against Boise State. 1. Find the Keith Price wayback machine: Two seasons ago, Price threw more touchdown passes in one season than any other quarterback in Washington’s long lineage of QBs. He played with a chip of always needing to prove that he was the correct choice in a quarterback competition with Nick Montana. That chip was gone in 2012, but it was replaced by an overwhelming burden Price felt to always be perfect. He didn’t trust his offensive line and had only a couple of reliable pass-catching options.
That led to poor decisions and poor play, capped by interceptions on his final passes against Washington State in the Apple Cup and Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl. “I just want to get back to myself, and playing the way I’m capable of playing and being better than I’ve ever been,” Price said. Sarkisian believes the chip has returned, since so many doubt Price, and the coach said that’s good. 2. Give Keith a hand: Finding more pass-catching options for Price became more important when it was announced that third-team All-American tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will miss an undetermined amount of time with a broken right pinkie. Last season, Price’s main targets were Kasen Williams and Seferian-Jenkins. Of Price’s 263 completions last season, 146 went to that duo. TURN
Revitalization project continues Cougs seeking a winning year BY NICHOLAS GERANIOS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PULLMAN — Washington State hasn’t had a winning season in nine years, the longest streak of futility in team history. The Cougars are counting on second-year coach Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense to end that streak by improving on last year’s 3-9 record. A veteran quarterback in Connor Halliday and a deep receiver corps will help, but a better offensive line is key to the team’s hopes of success. Last year, the Cougars allowed 57 sacks, the most in the nation, while gaining only 349 yards rushing, last in the nation. “Our offensive line has gotten better and better and better,” Leach insisted. “They’ve improved at a faster rate than I thought they would.” Last year, the offensive line had only a handful of players who had ever played a down in college. It was full of former walkons, including senior center Elliott Bosch, who played every offensive snap and was honor-

mic rushing yardage the Cougars have posted in recent years. “The biggest deal is we are able to run the ball,” Halliday said. “That opens up everything for me and the receivers.” Halliday split the starting job last season with the graduated Jeff Tuel — neither player could solidify the job. Six receivers who caught at least 22 passes last year are
back, led by Brett Bartolone (53 catches), Gabe Marks (49 catches) and Isiah Myers (42 catches). Washington State’s last winning season was 2003, although the Cougars finished 6-6 in 2006. They have not won more than five games in a season since. TURN

Jets’ Ryan says Smith has ‘brutal’ practice day THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Geno Smith threw one interception, and then another. And then, two more. It wasn’t a good performance by the New York Jets rookie quarterback. At all. “It was brutal,” coach Rex Ryan said flatly on Wednesday. “That was Geno’s worst day.” Smith, competing with Mark Sanchez for the starting job, was intercepted four times, including three in 11-on-11 team drills. He is still dealing with a sprained right ankle, that he has looked less hobbled by in practice the last few days. But Ryan said it is clearly affecting his performance, as well
as his fundamentals and being late on some throws. “Obviously, the ankle is part of it, but way too many picks,” Ryan said. “He did not look comfortable today. Obviously, he has to come back from it, and he will come back from it. But it was a bad day. “Guys have bad days, but this was a really bad day.” It was also an unseasonably cold day in Cortland — the temperature at the start of practice was a mere 52 degrees with occasional rain. “It was a beautiful December day today,” Ryan quipped. “That, without question, had to be the coldest training camp day I’ve ever been a part of. That’s about 30 years.
“Man, that was chilly. Almost as chilly as the offensive performance today.” And that included Smith’s performance. The second-round pick, however, insisted the ankle has not been a factor. “I haven’t really been trying to use it as an excuse,” he said. “I’ve been going out there and giving it my all, and I think I’ve done a good job of just pushing through this week.” Ryan agreed that Smith hasn’t been using the injury an excuse for his performances lately, but added that it’s “bravado” by the quarterback saying it’s not affecting him. “Guys, you see it out there,” Ryan said. “He’s not able to move
like he normally does. “He’s not able to drive the ball like he normally does with his velocity. That doesn’t mean he still can’t get out there. He’s competing. He’s been out there every day. “But is he 100 percent? I would say that he’s not 100 percent.” The Jets have still not decided on a starter for the team’s preseason game Saturday night against Jacksonville, but Sanchez has outperformed Smith this week. When asked if he wants to start Saturday, Smith curiously said: “No comment.” Ryan acknowledged that it’s a “possibility” Smith won’t play against the Jaguars, but added
that there’s still plenty of time for the injury to heal. Smith, meanwhile, remained positive about his camp so far — as well as the injury. “The ankle’s feeling good,” Smith said. “It’s getting progressively better.” Smith was injured in the team’s preseason opener at Detroit last Friday night, but has not missed any practice time. With both quarterbacks facing the scout-team defenses as the Jets prepare for Jacksonville, Smith was not sharp. He was intercepted by Rontez Miles on a pass that went off the hands of Ryan Spadola in 7-on-7 drills, and also picked off by Royce Adams, Jacquies Smith and Bret Lockett.

Combined Olympic All-Stars capture 2nd in 16U tourney PENINSULA DAILY NEWS
PUYALLUP â€” A combined 16U baseball all-star team from Port Angeles and Sequim captured second place at the prestigious Maverick Late Summer USSSA Tournament last weekend. The Olympic All-Stars lost their first two games of the tourney but came roaring back to advance to the championship game of the United States Specialty Sports Association event. Teams from all over Western Washington and the Puget Sound area participated in the tourney. The North Olympic Peninsula team lost the first game by two runs, and lost the second game on Satur-
day before rallying back to get to the title game. The Olympic All-Stars pulled together and played like a team thatâ€™s been playing together for years to win their way into the championship game Sunday before losing in a 10-9 squeaker to claim second place. It was a great game, with the score going back and forth, according to manager Richard Stone. â€œWe were so proud of these boys, going from archrivals [Port Angeles and Sequim] to teammates and claiming second place against teams that have been playing all year together,â€? Stone said. â€œThis whole experience
was a real eye-opener.â€? â€œOur goal was to help prepare these boys for Wilder [Baseball],â€? coach Jason Paynter said. â€œIf they want to play for Wilder, than they are going to have to play together at some point, and this was an excellent way to do so.â€? Coach Dean Rhodefer said, â€œIâ€™ve been trying to get these boys to play together for years. There is real talent here.â€? The Olympic All-Stars usually is a Port Angelesbased team, linked to the North Olympic Babe Ruth program. Sequim has its own 16U Junior Babe Ruth all-star team as well. Both teams were very
successful in the regular season, and were archrivals to each other. Sequim beat Olympic in districts the past two years while Olympic defeated Sequim in state the past two seasons, claiming second at state two years in a row. This is the first time that Sequim and Port Angeles have formed a combined team in years. The Olympic All-Stars have a ton of talent, and the coaches thought it would be a great idea to merge the Port Angeles and Sequim teams and make an even better team to go play a USSSA tournament in the Seattle metro area, according to Stone.
Avril returns to practice THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
RENTON â€” First slowed by foot problems during offseason workouts, and then a hamstring, Cliff Avril was just happy to be feeling well enough to get on the field for a short time. â€œDefinitely not how I wanted to start out here,â€? Avril said. â€œItâ€™s part of football. Things happen. For me itâ€™s just getting better every day and progressing with the injuries and getting ready for the season.â€? Avril, Seattleâ€™s big free agent signing at defensive end in the offseason, was on the practice field Wednesday for the first time in training camp. Avril only participated in individual drills, but coach Pete Carroll was hopeful Avril might make it through a full practice today. â€œIt was just a start,â€? Carroll said. â€œWe couldnâ€™t get him past the individual periods yet. Weâ€™re going to do a little bit more [today] and just start bringing him back. â€œItâ€™s great getting him back on the field. He needs to be part of this.â€? Even if Avril makes it through a full practice today, itâ€™s unlikely that he would play on Saturday when the Seahawks host Denver in their second preseason game.
